Mystical Aria, Seeking the Gallion Queen


"Many compare Guthrie's novel to the endearing kid-meets-alien theme in 
Steven Spielberg's E.T." ~ David Thalberg
Aria Vanir, psychic 12-year-old girl from Virginia Beach, trusts only her mother with the knowledge of her predictions and remote viewings. When Aria connects with technically and spiritually advanced aliens—the Gallions—she instead confides in her best friend, Tommy Manger. His unexpected anger threatens to end their friendship. 

Nashata, Queen Supreme of the Gallions, leads a diplomatic mission with her royal family to Earth so she can make peaceful contact with Aria. The queen trusts only this "youngirl" with the secrets of her people. 

When the Gallions beam Aria, Tommy, and Aria's tomboyish teen sister, Jackie, aboard their spaceship, Aria's typically passive mother makes a daring move to save her daughters. None of them realize that the military has sent Aria's Navy SEAL father, William, on a mission to capture the good aliens or destroy their spaceship. Worse, William has no idea that he's putting his daughters and their friend in harm's way.

Can Aria succeed in her quest to meet the alien queen in person, despite the fears and disbeliefs of those closest to her? 


Aria Vanir breezed through her seventh-grade homework to focus on far more important matters. While many of her friends and neighbors gathered at the Virginia Beach boardwalk to admire the amber and ruby rays from the setting sun, Aria preferred to gaze through her bedroom window at the darkening heavens. For her, twilight welcomed the dawn of the stars. On this clear evening in late May 2028, Aria mindlessly tapped her fingers against the top of her transmission binder, or tBinder, as she wondered who lived among those twinkling orbs.


How could a human youngirl on Earth, the queen wondered, know so much about the land of the Gallions? Of all the aliens, why would Aria specifically invite the Gallions to visit her? Could this be the sign I've been waiting for?


"I'll never ever talk to aliens," Aria promised herself. The struggle of keeping their secrets and defending their existence was too painful. "Never again."

Mitushi gazed at the puddles of water on the floor. Red lines of blood flowed into them and spread in different directions. It reminded him of veins in a human body and how vulnerable men and women are to the weapons mankind had designed.

She worried she was dying. It was a parasite from her puppy that nearly killed her!

Giardiasis is a devastating illness that starts with digestive symptoms but can spread and can cause hormonal imbalance, fatigue, allergies, skin rashes, swollen lymph glands, leaky gut, muscle pain & arthritis. Giardia infection may also cause an overgrowth of yeast or bacteria in the
 small intestine, producing symptoms. 

How is it possible to love the thing that almost ends your life? Three days after the arrival of "Buddy," an adorable Golden Retriever puppy, Tracey Berkowitz's picture perfect life shatters. Almost overnight, she looks horrible, feels horrible and has no idea why. 

Not My Buddy is a love story between one woman and the dog who restores her spirit while she finds her way toward health. Over the course of five years, Tracey Berkowitz and her family spend more than $80,000 on a team of 16 health care professionals and, at one point, 132 pills per day, while they seek a diagnosis and treatment for this mysterious illness.

Taken to the brink of bankruptcy and divorce and incapacitated as a mother, Tracey removes the masks that contributed to her dis-ease, leaving her vulnerable, terrified, and headed on a collision course with her soul's true purpose: to help those suffering from chronic giardiasis—ironically "the gift" from the dog who teaches her self-love.

The Modern Woman by Catherine MacDonald

It's 1923. Burlesque and jazz are the rage. Alcohol is banned, but the country is drinking bathtub gin. The war is over. Women are allowed to vote, hemlines are rising, and women are smoking and performing striptease in clubs. A new modern woman is emerging. One who is politically active, works for wages, and is interested in her sexuality.  Seventeen-year-old Lily Diamond, whose mother is dead and father abusive, in order to survive, is working in one of Kansas City's premier speakeasies. There is a commotion at the front entrance and Lily looks that way. The door bursts open and a swarm of police rush in swinging their black clubs in the air and yelling, "Raid!" A tall portly officer blew his whistle and yells, "No one leave the room. You're all under arrest."

ATale of Vengeance Set Against the Worst Hurricane in Louisiana History

Derrick Cameaux shouted into the night, "WHY?" His only answer was the echo of his question reverberating around the dark emptiness. Now, seemingly without any fortitude or desire to subdue his grief, his weeping turned into loud, wailing cries of sorrow. His very soul had been forever branded by an indelible iron, and something had happened to Derrick that night. At his darkest moment, from the deepest recesses of his grief, the first sign of a different emotion had been implanted--vengeance. Unexpectedly, a cool breeze swept across his face as though to wipe away his tears and restore his composure. Though his grief was still present, he was vitally aware that he was alive and there were people depending on him. He would not let them down!

"Very hard to put down! The details of every scene make you feel like you are right beside the characters. The reader can smell, see and hear the action! It combines love of family/friends and one's heritage; romance and mystery; and an evil thread. I anticipated a different ending, but was surprised, if not shocked, by it. Not being an avid reader, I'm so glad that I did not miss this read! It was hard in the most suspenseful parts not to read too quickly and miss the very vivid descriptions the author so craftily wove into this book. I look forward to a sequel!" ~Ang

"This is one you can't put down!!! The twists and turns keep you turning the pages, waiting to see what happens! Unto the Last Seed is an exciting historical fiction novel that contains vivid descriptions by the author that make you believe that you have been transported into the heart of Cajun Country!!! From the beautiful serene swamps to the pesky mosquito's, you feel it all!!! Can't wait for the next novel by this up and coming author!!! Craig J. Leonard, Sr. has now become one of my favorites!!!" ~ Nicole Wells
